Some of the footage of the sinking of the R.M.S. Goliath were taken from the movies The Last Voyage (1960) and Torpedo Run (1958). See more »
When the ship "Goliath" is sunk in the opening sequence it shows the ship broken and sinking in two equal halves, each tilted about 40° toward what had been the ship's midpoint and many yards apart with debris pouring from each ruptured section. In the next sequence when the ship is viewed with a sonar scanner the ship is one piece. See more »
Then you tell me why no one has challenged him to change his system.
How? With armed guards walking around & people believing how great he is? You'd end up in jail if you did. Like me. Or worse. You suddenly die of an affliction peculiar to Goliath. Mysterious affliction called Palmer's disease. And always fatal.

WPIX (Channel 11 in NYC) used to show this movie when I was a kid and I always loved it. WPIX had all those schlocky graphics for their 8 O'clock movie. I also recall them showing this on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. I think I saw it about 4 times in total.
I haven't seen it in 20 years probably but would love to see it again.
I loved the music -- there was some big band numbers that they tended to repeat over and over again -- presumably because they were the only songs they knew how to play.
I seem to recall the production quality was a bit weak but it was pure fantasy so who really cared.
